In October 2005, The ALS Warrior Poet aka "The Blazeman" became the first ALS patient to ever compete in an Ironman, completing the grueling course in Kona, Hawaii in 16 hours and 28 minutes.
His battle through the Lava fields of Hawaii still fresh in his mind and no longer able to compete himself, Blazeman is assembling an army of multi-sport athletes for the War on ALS to end this disease.
These athletes, known as Team Blazeman Warriors, will compete in multi-sport events around the world to raise awareness of ALS and valuable funds for research. The proceeds will go to companies like ALS-TDF, MMDA, Project ALS and to individuals with ALS who are in need of financial assistance. Our mission is to end ALS and failure is not an option.
I have joined this cause and will be competing in the Beach 2 Battleship Iron Distance Triathlon on Oct 29, 2011. This will be quite challenging but not as challenging as fighting ALS. All contributions go directly to the Blazeman Foundation. Please help me reach my goal and at the same time help to fight this disease. I am truely honored to be part of his team.
NOW IT'S YOUR CHANCE!
